An easy to DIY TV stand

Chris finds an easy solution for his flatscreen TV and components.

He says, “I needed a TV Stand for my 26” Flatscreen so I could store a DVD Player and a cable tuner right below instead of placing the TV directly on top of both components. I searched and could not find anything at Walmart, Target, even Home Depot. After browsing the Ikea catalogue, I then went to my local Ikea store, with measurements and picked up the 2 key items. I purchased the Ekby Osten shelf in birch veneer and the Capita legs. The shelf was a perfect dimension for the base of the TV and supports its weight. After the purchase and a little preplanning, the end result was this crafty TV stand.”
